Here’s how to do it . . . .
Homemade Big Batch Powdered Laundry Soap
You Will Need:
1 Box 20 Mule Team Borax (76 oz)
1 Box Arm & Hammer Washing Soda (55 oz)
1 Bar Fels Neptha Soap – grated
1 Bar Ivory Soap – grated
1. Grate the bar of Fels Naptha Soap and the bar of Ivory soap. ( I usually use my small hand grater from the dollar store). I’ve found it’s helpful to unwrap the bars of soap a day or two ahead of time and let them dry out a little. This gives you smaller drier pieces when you grate the soap. You can also run your grated soap through a food processor to make them a little bit finer too. Set the grated soap aside for now.
2. Dump the entire box of borax into your container. Sometimes borax is a little lumpy so dumping it in first gives you a chance to smash the lumps out.
3. Next, dump in the entire box of washing soda.
4. Finally dump in your grated soap
5. Stir it all together and there you have it! A nice big batch of homemade powdered laundry soap ready and waiting.
Use 2 tablespoons per load. A little scooper in your container will save the day. Go forth and save money on laundry!
